My name is [NAME] and I am raising money to “Support the Girl Child Student” – a Wells for Zoë project to help send girls to Secondary School by partially or fully covering their fees and subsistence while there. If you need more background info about Wells for Zoë, the small family-run Irish voluntary organisation founded in 2005, look through the rest of the website and you could start here.
My goal is to raise enough to enable one girl take up her position at school for a year, supporting her by paying her fees and other school-going expenses. This costs €180.

What is the Problem? Why is this Important?
The women we serve in Northern Malawi, are born into poverty, they have no rights but a myriad of responsibilities, even as girls. They carry water on their heads when they are as young as four or five, they collect firewood, they are responsible for the growing and cooking of food, and really don’t have a life. Males are fed first, preferentially educated and have any of the rights that exist. But there’s worse, like traditional cultural practices, trafficking, mutilation, early marriage and childbirth complications.
Educated girls have fewer children, are better able to care for their children, demand better access to health care and information, practice safer sex, have better access to jobs, and are more likely to send their children to school.
